This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is images-1-2.png

Note: If someone informs you that they have developed symptoms within 48 hrs after attending the club, you MUST do the following.

  1. Please immediately inform Bruce Elder, the clubs Covid-19 First Aid Liaison officer, who will complete the RFU notification form so that the RFU can keep track of the virus within grassroots rugby.
  2. Inform all those who were in attendance the previous Sunday that someone has presented symptoms 48 hrs rugby (without disclosing the name). Once the results of the test are know, update your group accordingly.

We are now at Stage E in the ‘Return to Rugby’ RFU Roadmap.

Therefore, this checklist should be read in conjunction with the OCRFC Return to Rugby update where you will find detailed information regarding stage E and also a link to our clubs main Covid 19 page

All participants (Players/Coaches.Volunteers) MUST complete our OCRFC COVID 19 Track & Trace google form and this MUST be returned to your Team Manager BEFORE Sunday. 

Click here for the up to date: Emergency First Aid Provision for the Community Game . Sadly our Club and First Aid Risk Assessment was too large to upload so will be sent to you by email from the First Aid Co-ordinator.

  • All age groups must have a first aider attending the training session with a ratio of 1no. per 20 players.
  • Where possible all first aid treatment should be carried out in an outdoor space.
  • If at all possible please ask the player to self administer simple first aid treatment themselves or if their parent is close by they can assist.
  • If this is not possible then additional PPE should be taken as per the attached RFU Documents
  • For all Level 1 injuries you are now required to wear a medical face mask as well as the standard PPE gloves
  • For all Level 2 injuries – You are now required to wear all of the above but with the addition of a disposable apron.

As always, In the event of an injury:

Follow the OC’s Injury protocol and return the OCs injury form (please try to fit onto 1 page) to firstaid@ocrfc.co.uk

The main thing to remember when using the reporting forms is that if the player is admitted to hospital our Clubs First Aid Co-ordinator MUST submit our accident/injury form to the RFU within 48 hours of the injury. Therefore a form in this instance is imperative.
